Notre Dame is a wonderful school. It's a very green, woodsy campus, despite its proximity to Baltimore proper. The students and staff are overall extremely outgoing and friendly. The campus mentality is that of a family, tight knit, but inclusive. The academic workload here varies greatly between majors. Notre Dame students are very active in the collegetown community; we have especially good ties with Hopkins and Towson (IMHO). The food is terrible; luckily, there are grocery stores close enough to walk, or bike, to, as a friend does. I am totally biased, but I love this school! Please come here, we'd love to have you. :)

The Food Sucks. While I am grateful that they want to keep our health in mind, the food is just awful. It wouldn't be as bad if they seasoned it nicely. It lacks flavor to say the least.

I was actually disappointed to learn that SAGE provides our food. My old job used SAGE for a while and that did not work out. The quality of food does not match the cost!

The menus are quite repetitive..you'll never fail to see some variation of nachos/tacos a couple times a week, along with undercooked pasta and watery sauce. On many days when the food is inedible, the deli bar, salad bar, dessert bar &amp; soup bar all come in handy. I've had many bowls of cereal for dinner.

The hours are also inconvenient. Breakfast is over very early (if you don't have early classes), lunch is pretty ok, and dinner is over very early as well. There aren't many options for late-night eating except to order take-out or go on a late-night food run. If you're broke, you'll probably just deal with the late night hunger. Your waistline will thank you, though.

Meal plans all cost the same, but it's up to you how you want to use it. The more meals you have, the less Gator bucks you have to spend at the cafe downstairs.

Resident &quot;Labs&quot; Are a Failure – The one computer lab we have on campus is fairly nice, even though there are only two Macintosh computers there. Surprisingly, printing is free which is a plus. The IT people can not and do not control the noise level in the lab, making it not the best place to get work done. The Mac lab that we have on campus is not open to all students, only students in specific classes, which I find very unfortunate. The "computer room" in the Meletia residence hall is atrocious. There are literally three computers in there with no proper seating area. The monitors look like they came from a 1995 garage sale. Internet access is a whole different story. Our wireless networks are unsecure, making anyone who visits our campus able to use any network, including resnet. The wireless speed is as slow as dial-up. The only time it works quickly is literally at 5 a.m. when there are only a couple users in the building. For the amount of money we pay to attend the college, you would think they would at least provide the students, especially residents with high-speed internet and secure networks!
